Steps to Eating a Maine Lobster
1. Twist off the claws. Just grab a claw
and twist at the joint.
2. Crack open the claws. Just put
the cracker across the claw so that it is going across the
flat side of the claw and crack it.
3. Pick out the meat with a lobster pick.
If you pick it gently, you can pull the meat out in one
piece. You can start to enjoy eating the lobster, dip
it in butter. You will taste a sweet, succulent piece
of meat...but it gets better.
4. Turn the lobster on it's back and
uncurl the tail, then twist it off.
5. Twist off the little flippers. There's
small bits of meat in the flippers... so dip it and suck it
6. Push the meat out from the lobster tail
using your thumb just push the meat through. The lobster
tail to most people is the most delicious part of the
lobster. However, It is chewier than the claws which
are more tender and sweeter.
7. The last part of the lobster is its 8
legs, there's some meat in those, so just pick the meat out
and suck on those too. If you are a first time lobster
eater....maybe pass on the sucking.
